Getting Up Guide: Green Carpet Affair and PWYC theater

By Stephanie Merry

What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening on Wednesday:

Green Carpet Affair

Eastern Market will be transformed into a destination for an exciting slate of entertainers, art and organic food during a party that benefits eco-conscious non-profit DC Greenworks. Live performances include hip-hop from Christylez Bacon and music courtesy of DJ Dub El, while complimentary brews will be flowing thanks to Lagunitas Brewing Company. (The festival will be thrown by the folks behind next year's inaugural and massive Monument Music and Arts Festival, which has been getting a lot of buzz.) Other draws include an art installation and organic food offerings. But, as the name would suggest, this is really an event with a mission, so aspiring locavores and sustainability proponents can also enjoy discussions about ways to make D.C. a greener place to live.

A Bitch and a Bastard

Stone, Flying Dog and DCBeer.com sponsor this evening of tasting, and if it's anything like previous Flying Dog and Stone events, it will be fast, loose and funny. Each of the five rounds at the Big Hunt will feature beers that are stylistically similar or as close as possible -- Stone's Cali-Belgique faces off against Flying Dog's Raging Bitch, for example, and Ruination IPA takes on the Double Dog Double IPA.

Travels With My Aunt
Rep Stage kicks off its season with the theatrical adaptation of Graham Greene's novel about a middle-aged bank clerk, whose dull life is thrown into a tailspin when he embarks on an adventure with his wacky Aunt Augusta. Pay what you can every Wednesday starting today.
